• Ryan + Brittany | Engaged

My boyfriend Michael is currently a part of Crossroads Worldwide Ministries‘ Discipleship House where he lives with 10 other amazing people.  He shares his life with them and they all serve the community in different capacities and through different internships.  This program is incredible, not just because it gives the opportunity to experience ministry first hand but because it forms awesome, life long relationships.


Ryan is Michael’s roommate and I met him and Brittany last spring when they had just started dating! It was so exciting when Michael told me he had proposed and even more exciting when he asked if I could do engagement pics for them! We walked all over downtown Greenville, SC and had a blast.  I would move there solely to take pictures! That little city is BEAUTIFUL!


I loved getting to spend an evening with Ryan and Brit and seeing them interact.  They truly are best friends.  If I had all the time in the world I would tell their proposal story and you would be amazed! Ryan is ridiculous and loves her in extraordinary ways. Though I’m not able to do their wedding, I am THRILLED that I was able to capture their love for each other through this session! Please enjoy my MANY favorites! (I really think I have a problem with excessive posting… I’ll work on that.)

I LOVE this one! It’s probably in my top 5!

Brittany you’re going to be a gorgeous bride!

These next two were taken inside a unique little restaurant where Ryan had their families and friends meet them for dinner after he proposed!

These are a couple of letters Ryan sent to Brittany that he sealed with a real wax stamp of her initals!!
